My theory is that it could be the injectors clogging. You could first try running a higher octane fuel, then if that doesn't seem to help try using the minimal amount of gas, and add injector cleaner to the tank. If all of this fails to work you can take your vehicle to the dealership where they can run a system analysis on it and help you pinpoint the problem. Hope this was helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.

For that many codes I would refer you to a bulletin covering the 123 and 124 connectors. This bulletin has instructions on how to upgrade these 2 connectors which connect the engine to the ECM. The connectors are located under the intake manifold towards the firewall. You need to remove the battery, pull the connectors apart, give the male side a slight twist, then you add Stabulent 22 to the connectors and reconnect. The dealerships also add some clips to hold the connectors together better. This task is not an easy one due to the location of the connector. I have done it many times in the past and this helped many of my costomers. Anither thing to check is the continuity to ground at the MAF. This also can indicate bad connection throughout the engine harness. to upgrade this connection, clean the ground connections at the battery and under the battery tray. these simple uperations should have been made into normal maintenance for the 95 - 99 Sportages.

there is a splice for fuel injectors at the front of the fuel rail conduit and electric tape will need to be removed to see if it is ok then clean up all engine grounds and ecm grounds on passenger side kick panel if this doesnt help check coils and crank sensor
